Just about the perfect flat for many reasons: 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, balcony, immaculate, garage, wonderful grounds, great location, heated swimming pool, caretaker, even pet friendly.
Lovely community to live in, great lock up and leave holiday home, or invest for the future.
I don’t think I know of a block so well managed as Greenacres. From major items to minor detail-the block is being externally painted in the spring of 2020, which monies have already been allocated. And the caretaker still collects the rubbish every week day. From having its own swimming pool to its own herb garden
These flats were substantially built in 1965 when the focus was on providing significant grounds and these are wonderful. Lawns the size of a cricket ground and just as manicured, a secret garden, and an open air heated swimming pool.
Let’s talk about the swimming pool and grounds. Hidden behind shrubs and a wall is a beautifully maintained open air heated swimming pool and sunbathing area. This is open from May until September and has an individual locker for each flat, changing cubicles and a shower. There is a toilet as well. Behind the swimming pool is a beautiful secret garden with mature shrubs, pergola, benches. This is ideal for a BBQ and well used by the flat community. There is even a communal herb garden if you run out of mint for your Pimms.
The flats can be accessed from Western Road or The Avenue and there are garage blocks and visitor parking. The flat comes with a garage with an electric up and over door, power and light. Although the location means you will barely need a car: walk to Westbourne, walk to the Chines, walk to the beach, walk to the Railway station, walk to the supermarket.
Inside the flat everything is perfect: a contemporary kitchen with integrated appliances-a stainless steel 1.5 bowl sink and drainer, gas hob, extractor hood, dishwasher (never used), washer/dryer, fridge freezer and double oven. The Glow Worm Energy 30C boiler, just 1 year old, is also in the kitchen. Contemporary gloss high and low level units, tiled splashbacks, tiled floor, spotlights.
There is a luxury bathroom, a shower room, 3 double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, a 250 sq. ft living room/dining area, a 22 ft terrace which is accessed from both the living room and also from both the main bedroom and bedroom 2.
As well as the fitted wardrobes in each bedroom, the owner has been keen on storage. A large 3 door cupboard for coats, shoes as well as shelving units. This is in the 1st hall. In the inner hall is an airing cupboard and another storage cupboard.
In the last couple of years, the vendor has refurbished the whole flat including new electrics, new plumbing, new Glow Worm combi boiler, new radiators with thermostatic controls and new double glazing. Fensa, gas and electric certificates (NICEIC) are all available. All the doors in the apartment are TOD oak veneered.
The caretaker lives in the grounds and is everyone's sounding board and 'go to' if anything needs doing. He even collects the refuse from outside the flat doors every morning Monday-Friday. In fact the whole block is meticulously planned and managed.
A large delightful place to live.

Area Description 
Greenacres is within a 10 minutes walk of Branksome Chine beach making this location perfect for summer evening and weekend strolls along the promenade. At Branksome Chine itself is Branksome Beach Cafe, a great treat either before or after the walk for a coffee & cake or spot of lunch. There is a 7 mile stretch of award winning blue flag beaches to be enjoyed there is an array of other places to stop for food, drink or an ice cream. From Branksome Chine it is an easy stroll into Bournemouth Centre or in the opposite direction to Sandbanks which is the entrance to Poole Harbour; the 2nd biggest natural harbour in the world.

. 
There are a number of activities to be enjoyed given the close proximity to the beach and Poole Harbour itself, if it is body boarding, kite surfing or paddle boarding you are into you really would be spoilt for choice as the list goes on. Don't forget that the block is pet friendly and there is no better place to walk with man's best friend than the beach. And for energetic people (and dogs) Dorset's Jurassic coast is a key destination for walkers. This is over the chain ferry at Sandbanks, which is also the gateway to the Purbeck Hills which accommodates the area's large cycling community. For golfers the area is full of recommended courses the closest being Parkstone which is in the top 100 in the UK. Tennis courts and a green bowls lawn in Leicester Road are a short walk. Or a lazy day on Sandbanks beach is always good.

.. 
If you enjoy meeting friends for long lazy lunches or fancy a spot of shopping you have a number of options, especially if you don't want to take the car, Westbourne and Canford Cliffs village are both within walking distance. Westbourne is full of an eclectic mix of eateries and coffee shops as is Bournemouth. The local Daily Echo ran a recent article 'Why Westbourne is foodie heaven'. Locally Westbourne is considered very much a village with lots of independent shops and the UK's smallest cinema with just 19 seats. The pick of eateries are The Dancing Duck, Indi's. Renoufs cheese and wine bar, the award winning Chez Fred fish 'n chips and a real traditional pub-The Porterhouse. And in Canford Cliffs, don't miss going to The Cliff pub.

... 
There are some real 'treat' restaurants locally. On special occasions try out Rick Stein's that sits on the edge of Poole Harbour and the Pig on the Beach in Studland with the some of the most special views over Poole Harbour and Old Harry Rocks. For shopping there is an M&S food store in Westbourne and a larger store Tesco or Lidl at Branksome , all walking distance from Greenacres. For ladies the famous HND hairdressing and beauty salon is in the local Canford Cliffs village.

.... 
From Greenacres you have easy access(less than 2 minutes) to the Wessex Way which is dual carriageway to the A31, from here you have access to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. Bournemouth International Airport is within 9 miles and Branksome Railway Station is closeby and has direct routes to London(2 hours) and Manchester. And from Poole Harbour there are daily ferries to France and the Channel Isles. Flat living but with the benefits, and not the hassle, of the grounds and the swimming pool. Home or lock up and leave holiday bolthole or future investment with £1300 pcm rental income achievable now. Whichever is for you, you will not be disappointed.
